Steelers' Hotel Demands Posted on The Smoking Gun.


Wednesday August 15, 2007
From KDKA.com

When the Steelers hit the road for away games it’s no easy task organizing and coordinating hotel accommodations, especially for a team of big football players who come along with a staff.

That’s where one website comes in.

The site, TheSmokingGun.com, has just posted a rider, claiming that Pittsburgh’s hometown team has 17 pages chock full of needs, wants and instructions for hotel staff members.

From, foam rubber pillows to a Catholic priest to Filet Mignon, it seems that when it comes to providing for the Pittsburgh Steelers, hotels have their work cut out for them.

On the team’s list:
•35 copies of the local newspaper from the city they are in
•Meeting rooms equipped with projectors, dry erase boards and theater style seating
•A room where Mass can be held
•And, the hotel staff must arrange for a Catholic priest

Alcohol Restrictions:
•Alcohol is absolutely prohibited in the players rooms and their mini-bars
•Room service is not allowed to deliver alcohol to any player
•Also, Gatorade and iced bottles of water must be placed near elevators on each floor the players are staying on

Hotel security:
•Must accompany the Steelers staff for player bed check @ 10:45pm
•No outside phone calls are permitted between 11pm-7am

Food:
Breakfast
•A made-to-order egg station that only uses non-fat cooking spray
•Crispy bacon
•Hard-boiled eggs that must be peeled
•Hash browns without green & red peppers
•Freshly squeezed orange juice
